The Treaty of Versailles : a reassessment after 75 years( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on the Treaty of Versailles constitutes a new synthesis of peace conference scholarship. It illuminates events from the armistice in 1918 to the signing of the treaty in 1919, scrutinizing the motives, actions, and constraints that informed decision making by the American, British, and French politicians who bore the principal responsibility for drafting the peace settlement. It also addresses German reactions to the draft treaty and the final agreement, as well as Germany's role in the immediate postwar period. The findings call attention to diverging peace aims within the American and Allied camps and underscore the degree to which the negotiators themselves considered the Versailles Treaty a work in progress. A detailed examination of the proceedings from the point of view of the main protagonists forms the core of the investigation."--Jacket
Hannah Arendt and Leo Strauss : German émigrés and American political thought after World War II( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hannah Arendt and Leo Strauss: German Emigres and American Political Thought after World War II is an examination of intellectual migration from Europe to the United States and the resulting influence of European scholars on both the American academy and their home countries after 1945. This collection presents essays by German and American political scientists on Hannah Arendt's and Strauss's emigre experience and their philosophical work in the United States. The authors discuss Arendt's and Strauss's intellectual contributions to American political science as well as the evolution of their respective oeuvres that grew out of the emigration experience. As demonstrated here, the flight from totalitarianism, the Jewish experience of National Socialism and the Holocaust, and the critical transference of German political philosophy to the United States furthered a distinctive interpretation of American political philosophy
